Synopsis


The Green Mile
Director Frank Darabont, who made an acclaimed feature film debut with The Shawshank Redemption (1994), based on a Stephen King novel set in a prison, returns for a second feature, based on King's 1996 serialized novel set in a prison. In 1935, inmates at the Cold Mountain Correctional Facility call Death Row "The Green Mile" because of the dark green linoleum that tiles the floor. Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) is the head guard on the Green Mile when a new inmate is brought into his custody: John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan), convicted of the sadistic murder of two young girls. Despite his size and the fearsome crimes for which he's serving time, Coffey seems to be a kind and well-mannered person who behaves more like an innocent child than a hardened criminal. Soon Edgecomb and two of his fellow guards, Howell (David Morse) and Stanton Barry Pepper), notice something odd about Coffey: he's able to perform what seem to be miracles of healing among his fellow inmates, leading them to wonder just what sort of person he could be, and if he could have committed the crimes with which he was charged. The Green Mile also stars James Cromwell as the warden; Michael Jeter, Sam Rockwell, and Graham Greene as inmates awaiting dates with the electric chair; and Harry Dean Stanton as a clever trustee. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    A review can be found on the back of the box as well as a summary, so I can only say if you're a Tom fan you'll enjoy it. Unique plot and twist on a common story from the era and area.

    I didn't realize the movie was that long (188 minutes). The director perfectly told us a story of miracle. Tom Hanks was amazing as usual. Michael Clarke Duncan played a big role here. He represented the character well enough to make his appearance memorable. My only regret was that I didn't watch this movie earlier.

    My sister recommended The Green Mile to me back in 1999 and what a surprise I had. This blu ray release is a great transfer, the look and sound of the movie is great and there are some good (SD) extras too. As far as the movie goes, the plot, the acting (with an amazing cast), the script, all are wonderful and makes for a memorable, magical movie.

    This is one of my all time favorite movies. The story is so sad but it is so well written it draws you in. The characters range from completely endearing to completely hateful and Persee is so annoying you want to choke him. The story is amazing though; so many believable characters.

    This movie will have you interested in more than one character. Yes Tom Hanks is the star, but “ John Coffy” is the story. Great film.
